Irish border deal reported settled as May meets Juncker

Irish border deal reported settled as May meets Juncker

"It was not possible to reach complete agreement today", he said.

In addition, the committed Brexiteers among the DUP argue that if, over time, Northern Ireland diverges from the trading regulations applied elsewhere in the United Kingdom, it could create a barrier to trade within the United Kingdom and prevent Belfast benefiting from any deals London might negotiate in the future.

The U.K. has reportedly accepted there will be "no regulatory divergence" of EU customs union and single market rules for Ireland after Brexit, according to RTE.

British negotiators were reported to have agreed outline rules with Ireland for their border after Brexit on Monday, sending the pound higher on hopes of a deal on European Union free trade as Prime Minister Theresa May arrived for crunch talks in Brussels.

But critics say that it would effectively move the customs border between the United Kingdom and the Republic into the Irish Sea, if the rest of the United Kingdom was not in the single market.

The UK however said it would not create a border between Northern Ireland and the rest of Britain.

"The Irish government remains hopeful, but at this stage it is very hard to make a prediction", the official added.

Giving a statement today, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar indicated he was still ready to support a deal but that the United Kingdom government may need more time to agree it.

May will also meet with Tusk on Monday.

The border issue remained the main sticking point.

The UK wants Brussels to rule that sufficient progress has been made on the opening issues in order for talks on trade and a transition period to open in December, after a summit of leaders next week.

European Court of Justice oversight protecting these rights, such as family reunification, and free movement for United Kingdom citizens are key sticking points in the talks.

"We will not change our red lines. If no clear commitment is made, the EPP group will not be ready to assess the progress made as sufficient to enter a 2nd phase of negotiations", Manfred Weber, German MEP and leader of the largest group, the European People's Party in the EP, tweeted.

May and Juncker made no comment to reporters when they met at the European Union executive's Berlaymont headquarters for a lunch that diplomats and officials hope can seal a breakthrough that would open the way to negotiations on future trade relations.

He added: "The indications we have is that we are in a much better place now than we have been in the negotiations to date".
